Enjoying sharing your passion for the arts? Help us bring joy to the children of Ghana!

The Creative Arts project is based in schools in the city of Kumasi. It was developed as art offers a platform to escape from reality and the hardships of everyday life for vulnerable and disadvantaged children, while also teaching skills that can positively impact their futures. The Ghana Education Service has recently included arts as part of the curriculum in the hope to improve the children's creativity, and ultimately, their lives. Art allows students to express themselves, tapping into their inventiveness and creativity, and is a fun outlet that helps positively stimulate and motivate. By teaching youth creative skills and allowing them the freedom to express themselves, volunteers are imparting these youth with the skills to help them towards a happier, more fulfilling life. Since this is a new initiative in the education system, there is a severe lack of creative arts teachers and a desperate need for volunteers to help staff the project. Volunteers will have a curriculum to follow, however are encouraged to teach any creative subject or activity that will benefit the children. Resources are limited so donations from volunteers are greatly appreciated. This is important for those volunteers who are designing activities that might be new and need additional materials.
